President Barack Obama said goodbye to the nation today, stating in a farewell address that he hadn’t abandoned his vision of progressive change.
In a packed hall of supporters in his adopted hometown, President Obama admitted “for every two steps forward, it often feels we take one step back.”
“This is where I learned that change only happens when ordinary people get involved, get engaged, and come together to demand it”
However, Obama’s emotional exit from the White House was marred in the final moments, after President-Elect Donald J. Trump appeared on stage and demanded that he be officially ‘tagged in’ as the new leader.
Obama, not looking to ostracise the imminent Trump presidency or his voters, hesitantly agreed.
With a mock-up WWE turnbuckle separating the two men, the atmosphere changed dramatically in Obama’s in the packed Chicago community hall when the serving President slapped hands with the real estate magnate.
The ceremony ended abruptly amidst a sea of booing Obama supporters.
